DENVER — Authorities are looking for a suspect who hit two Denver Police Department (DPD) officers with his car Wednesday morning.

DPD said the officers were working to stop a vehicle involved in a minor crash around 7:12 a.m. in the area of South Zenobia Street and West Alameda Avenue. That's just east of the Belmar area in Lakewood.

The officers made contact with the suspect vehicle around 7:26 a.m. While trying to contact the driver, the vehicle drove away injuring both officers, according to DPD.

The officers suffered minor injuries, and one was transported to the hospital for a routine procedure.

The driver has not been located, and DPD said officers are searching for a maroon vehicle.

No additional suspect information was released.

The 200 block of Alameda Avenue was closed while officers investigated.

Anyone who may have information about this crash is asked to call DPD at 720-913-2000.
